To love a painting is to feel that this presence is… not an object but a voice.

Bank of Oise at Auvers, 1890
Vincent Van Gogh
The colors in this painting are truly extraordinary; but what I most love is how Van Gogh has used the color and paint strokes to create movement. I feel the trees rustling and the waves rolling and the boats swaying; all in a static work of art. Could you imagine hanging such masterpiece in your house!
Art can never exist without naked beauty displaced.
